Junior College Education At The Learning Lab
The Learning Lab’s Junior College programmes for GP and H2 Mathematics help your child to manage his or her workload in preparation for the ‘A’ Level examinations. At this level, a strong focus on structure, content knowledge and precise application of knowledge marks our JC programmes as comprehensive and effective.
Performance excellence is the main focus of our Junior college programmes. With a short runway to the A levels, your child needs to hone exam skills by subject and by component.
At this stage, key learning habits work in the background to drive the application and refinement of essential exam management techniques.
Constant feedback loops and prompts for self-evaluation help your child to manage the pressure of the JC system — these performance training elements help your child focus on recalling, with precision, the key subject-specific knowledge learnt in school.
Be able to develop and express independent thoughts supported by real world facts, evidence and perspectives
Convey thoughts with conviction, eloquence and sophistication in verbal or written form
Consolidate and apply accumulated subject knowledge with precision and coherence

Recalling the lessons I've had in Paris 1 or New York 5, the most valuable one I gained was the sense that the world is my oyster. It is not just the names of the classrooms or the impeccable decor that encourage this sense. I took English from P4 to S4, and the fondest moments have been those where my teachers and I discussed the many happenings outside of the classroom. Be it my teacher's fondness for architectural marvels across the world as a window shedding light on the ebbs and flows of the global economy, or her entertaining stories of her childhood encouraging reflection on our own educations, I have learnt much more than just English itself. I am privileged to feel like I can now feel the pulse of this vast world, becoming an active participant in it, and in large part I have because TLL encouraged me to find this world beyond the classroom.

My journey at The Learning Lab through these 9 years has been particularly phenomenal - it has inspired and guided me in preparing solidly for the future. To find success in what you're striving towards, first find joy in it. To me, The Learning Lab's approach to education can be surmised as an irresistible combination of enriching material and passionate teachers. They were inspiring and knowledgeable, delivering a quality of education that I simply could not find elsewhere. Till this date, I still remember my visceral disappointment when I realized I would miss a Math lesson due to a family holiday, as my teacher had promised to apply geometry and spatial concepts to show us the unimaginable - how to create a hole on a piece of A4 paper large enough for us to walk through. It is hence this compelling combination that first showed me that learning could be fun, and filled me with palpable excitement whenever I learnt something new that stretched me beyond my peers. Whether it was the intensive exam preparations or the thorough content lectures, it has supported my academic growth and allowed me to achieve my personal bests.

The Learning Lab has provided me with treasured opportunities to excel and explore. Apart from its impeccable academic curriculum, its Future Leaders Program has brought me to the internationally acclaimed Harvard Model Congress thrice with my Learning Lab peers. On all three occasions, our team was conferred the distinguished award of excellence. This is a clear testimony to how adequately The Learning Lab prepares you for a worldly stage by bringing learning out of the classroom. Apart from the obvious takeaway of the awards, it has endowed me with better public speaking skills, the great experience of an overseas trip, and frankly a great lot of fun.
Junior College 1
Your JC 1 child requires expert help in managing the vast jump between secondary school curricula and the ‘A’ level syllabus. These programmes equip your child with relevant content knowledge and much-needed familiarisation with the testing formats and specifics of the ‘A’ level exam. Mastering the foundation in year 1 is important in building a strong position for the ‘A’ level.
Junior College 2
The JC programme gives students a runway of about 1.5 years to prepare for the ‘A’ levels. In The Learning Lab’s JC2 programme, students are taught how to strategise for the exams and ensure that their application of content knowledge is accurate and sophisticated. Teachers guide your child on exam-based skills and help them to build a strong confidence to succeed at the ‘A’ Level examinations.
